Canada, 2035

What will Canada be like in 2035

Introduction

In this Smore we are going to be talking about, will Canada be the greatest country to live in 2035? We are going to be starting with what is Canada situation right now, then how the environment is currently, next it will be Canada’s economy and resources, after that is going to be Canada’s living condition, and lastly our conclusion, would Canada be the greatest country to live in?

Changing populations

Canada's population has been increasing over the past 10 years by quite a large amount. Canada's population in 2013 was about 35 million people. In the year 2010 Canada's population was 34 million people. A large amount of this population is people immigrating to Canada. In the year 2001 250,640 people immigrated to Canada. about 9 years after that in the year 2010 280,281 people immigrated in that year, that's about 30,000 more people then in the year 2001. Though a large amount of our population is immigrants, a low amount of our population are the first nations people. First Nations people were the first people in Canada though only 1,400,685 people in Canada are of First Nations origin. I think if Canada's population keeps growing like this all the urban areas in Canada are going to become overpopulated and if it keeps growing like this Canada's population is going to be about 43 million people. Even though Canada has a lot of land most of its parts are very cold and many people would refuse to live there. If Canada's immigration rate continues to increase we would be taking in about 400,000 people each year by 2035. The first nations are going to probably going to increase in population as well, which its not necessarily a bad thing considering the low population of the First Nations anyway. Somethings they could do might be to start moving people to less urbanized areas so that the big cities aren't as crowded.

Interactions in the physical environment

Canada's current climate is relatively cold, though in its summers the temperature can rise to about 35°C during the daytime, but in its winter's -25°C is not uncommon so it is very cold in the winters. most of the time Canada is cold because it is up in the north part of the world. Canada's land is mainly plains and tundras, though there is a chunk of mountains in the middle area of Canada called the rocky mountains. I think Climate change is going to affect our country by making it more cold than it is currently making people move more south. I think this is going to happen because since global warming is heating up the planet and melting the ice in the arctic, its going to make the earth near those parts colder because of those ice pieces that are melting off and moving. Its probably going make people move more towards the south were there is already many cities that are crowded with people. Some things we could do to prevent these thing from happening could be making it so that we use less things that emit carbon dioxide into the air making the greenhouse effect that is causing global warming (or global climate change because some places are getting colder as well).

Managing Canada's resources and industries

Currently, Canada's top industries are forestry, mining, and oil/petroleum production industries. Canada's top trading partners are mainly the United States, China, and mexico. Canada is part of the global economy because Canada produces large amounts of lumber and oil which they trade to other countries, for example Canada trades crude oil from the oil sands in Alberta to the U.S. for money, I think in the year 2035 the United States will still be our greatest trading partner, because first, the 2 countries were right next to each other, and second because of NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement). In 2035 our most valuable resources is probably going to be oil, because currently the world is using it at a very fast rate and if we are going to continue to use it like this we are going to run out very quickly. Now I think that we aren't going to be managing the resource properly because oil has become a very important resource in our every day lives and people are going to become desperate and are going to be willing to pay a lot of money for it, in turn that is going to make Canada see this as a large profit so they will try to dig up as much of it as possible. But if it dose happen that Canada dose have oil left at that point, Canada is going to be a major contributor to globalization because oil prices could be very high at that point.

Livable communities

Because Canada's population is constantly increasing it creates this effect called urban sprawl which basically starts making rural more urbanized in a some what haphazard way. Urban sprawl is a problem because in the Toronto/Mississauga area of Ontario, Canada a large amount of very fertile farmland is there, but because of urban sprawl that area is becoming less and less of that farmland, all being buried under all the concrete of the city. I think that Ontario can resolve this issue by either increase the population density for an area or they can start directing people to live in more areas that are partially urbanized (suburban) areas for example the Barrie or Brampton.

Conclusion

In conclusion I think if current trends keep going, urban areas of Canada are going to become very crowded in the future, and we will squander the resources we do have in the end, unless we take the appropriate steps in keeping Canada a good place to live.
